It will take dedication, time and patience to get a six pack. But all you need to do is only two things: lose weight and build abs muscle. You get this by kind of adopting a dieting and exercising philosophy consistently. You can have the most toned and muscular abs, but it will not show if there is a layer of fat over them. This blog will discuss the ways in which you can accomplish both of these goals.
First step is understanding what it means to lose weight. In order to burn fat, you need to use up calories. Since there are about 3,500 calories in a pound, you need to burn about 3,500 more calories than you bring in with food or drink in order to lose one pound. It sounds simple, but it's actually quite hard. Don't have unrealistic expectations. A vigorous, hour-long workout will only burn 800 - 1,000 calories.
Your weight is regulated by energy balance, and calories are part of that equation. Some diets may promise you that counting carbs or eating a bunch of fruits and veggies will make the extra pounds drop off. But when it comes to weight loss, it is calories what counts the most. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories that you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages and increasing calories burned through physical activity so that you keep a negative energy balance towards losing weight. Once you understand this equation, you are ready to set your weight loss goals and make a plan to reach them.

Coffee, the mayor nature source of caffeine, is a wonderful natural energy drink with lots of physiological and pharmacological properties. Either if you are a coffee lover or you are under a muscle building or weight loss program, perhaps you should consider adding a caffeinated drink to your daily routines (tips: the average cup of filter coffee contains 140mg of caffeine compared with 100mg in instant coffee and only 75mg in tea). Caffeine is absorbed in the small intestine, metabolised in the liver cell and distributed to body tissues within 45 minutes of ingestion.

Virtual Personal Trainer uses unique science concepts to set our right “preset weight”. It has been first clinically tested and proved by his creator (**Update** Virtual Personal Trainer methodology has been Scientifically Proven in Jan 2017; likewise, our tools and apps have been recently validated in Dec 2017). Jose is 47 years old originally from Spain with Masters in Biological Science, Food Technology, Nutrition, Organizational Engineering and PhD in Biology. He has more than 20 years of professional experience occupying leading positions both at private and public sectors. In the sports & fitness training world, he used to practice martial arts (Karate, Ninjutsu and Self-Defense), diving, ski, and he was a gym personal trainer at his twenties. Later on he only practiced ski and snorkeling when he was on holiday. Because of his career he put sports a bit apart for a few years. He is much of a world travel person. Perhaps because of his traveling experiences and relation with different cultures one day he realised he was getting very fat and consciously unhealthy. He could not believe his weight was as much as 223 lbs (101 kgs). Too much business traveling and eating outside with no control over his food habits and spare time made him like that, he thought. But some day in July, 2012 he opened his eyes to the reality and that day was the beginning of a new resolution: "I never thought i will reach three ciphers. I will never be like this again", he promised himself.
